A brief overview of Microstrategy Objects

In Microstrategy all the reports, templates, metrics, facts and similar definitions are called as objects and they are stored in the Metadata repository. The Metadata maps Microstrategy objects in order to build the reports and analyze the data.

Microstrategy objects are generally classified into three categories.

  1. 1.Configuration Objects
  2. 2.Schema Objects
  3. 3.Application Objects

Configuration Objects:
Object included in this category are:

  • Connectivity information – Data base Instances
  • User privileges – Users, Groups
  • Project administration

Configuration objects are created using the Administration option in Microstrategy Desktop.

Schema Objects:

These objects correspond to the database objects such as tables, views and columns.

Schema objects include:

  • Facts
  • Attributes
  • Hierarchies

The schema objects are often created using the Microstrategy Architect.

Application Objects:

These objects are used to provide analysis of and insight into relevant data.

Common application objects include:

  • Reports
  • Documents
  • Filters
  • Templates
  • Metrics
  • Prompts
  • Custom Groups

These objects can be created and maintained using the Desktop and Microstrategy Web.
